    What are the great things to see in Lisbon?

    I think Lisbon's Barrio Alto is a special area - there is a very artsy, laid back vibe with great little cafes and bars. Stuff tends to kick off quite late (many shops don't even open until midday) and the area really starts to come alive around 8pm. http://travelinsider.qantas.com.au/lisbon_the_high_life.htm over 10 years ago

    With half a day in Hong Kong, what are the things I 'must see'?

    For cheap shopping (and lots of it) head to Mongkok (accessible from the train) - it is a mix of street markets and lots of stores. Great for shoes, bags, electronics, etc. I love Stanley but if you really only have a half a day you may struggle to get out there and back while fitting in anything else major. The Peak is a fanastic place to get a good view of the city and beyond. If you are on a budget, here is a selection of some free things to do in the city http://travelinsider.qantas.com.au/ask_the_crew_hong_kong_on_the_house.htm over 10 years ago
